I looked at Your suggestions.

I did follow the UEFI BOOTABLE USB instructions using Rufus.
I guess the ISO was broken. Will download another one,and this time I will try the Ultimate instead of Home Premium.


The new bootable USB booted into the Installation,and when I selected "New" on the Drive 0 Unallocated space,it said that other partitions would be also made.I accepted,but it hasn't finished making the partition after an hour(the loading cursor still runs in circle)

I will let it go on,hopefully it will make the partitions


It finished loading,and the drive was gone.
I selected refresh and the Disk 0 Unallocated space appeared again...

Which version do you actually own? That is the only one you should be downloading.

All versions of WIn7 are exactly the same OS with just a few extra expensive features unlocked in the higher versions.
